T.R. Knight and R.J. Helton Both Say They Are Gay
My mother always said that back in the slave days, slavemasters' wives would many times call their husbands by their first initials in front of the slaves, so that the darkies wouldn't get too familiar with their bosses and remain mysterious.
Turns out that another couple of initial-named stars had secrets too.
According to the New York Post's Page Six column, Grey's Anatomy star T.R. Knight confessed to People.com that he was gay.
Now we know what was behind the fight on the set of Grey's Anatomy recently. Supposedly, Isaiah Washington outed T.R. Knight, the beloved goofy-haired and sweet-faced George, when Dr. Preston Burke fought with McDreamy's Patrick Dempsey and George came to McDreamy's rescue.
The National Enquirer quoted Washington as saying some very unsavory things about T.R. Knight, who told People, "I hope the fact that I'm gay isn't the most interesting part of me."
I guess the former "American Idol" contestant R.J. Helton, who also came out of the gay closet this week summed it up best: "Just because I am gay does not mean I can't love God."
Here here. I second that motion. And just because you're both gay doesn't mean we don't love you either.
